NSEPS (Not So Expanded Polystyrene) – Silo Studio

They invented a new manufacturing process that involves steaming polystyrene beads inside fabric moulds. They used the process, called NSEPS (Not So Expanded Polystyrene), to create this range of furniture. Steaming causes the beads to melt, expand and fuse together, distorting their moulds.

Energy Artefacts is a collection of objects made with an idea of saving material waste

Material waste is something that effects all industries and leaves a lasting effect on the planet. This project is a collaboration with TED textile company and Chelsea College of Art and Design, students chose one or two TED principles to focus on – and come up with a new sustainable method for design using this principle.

Projekt Concret by Milos Ristin, Manuel Hitz and Lukas Baumgartner

The project started when Miloš Ristin with the idea of trying out a new approach which in this case meant first playing with a material and then generating ideas out of the experimental process.

MYX – Mycelium Textile Project by Jonas Edvard

The lamps consist of plant fibre and mushroom-mycelium. The lamps are grown into the shape during a period of 2 weeks, where the mushroom eats and grows together the plant fibres into a flexible and soft living textile.

Ototo meets ECAL – A workshop with Mark McKeague (Dentaku)

Sound production has never been more accessible, it’s now possible to make music on everyday computers, smartphones and tablets. The processes that generate the sounds are invisible inside these black boxes, and the traditional link between the action and the result from acoustic instruments is lost to both the performer and audience.

New Handwriting Tools, workshop by Job Wouters / ECAL

Job Wouters aka Letman, well known for its lettering artworks, took out of his suitcase pencils and markers, as well as strange utensils much different than a typical pen and asked to his students to create, produce or divert objects from their original function to turn them into new handwriting tools.

Else by Michal Fargo

Else is a project dealing with the gaps between craft and design. The aim of this project was to create different and authentic ceramic surfaces. By creating a different working technique that does not require molds she was able to design free forms that are not restricted by parting lines and pouring points, she was also able to get different and diverse surfaces. By using sponge models and dipping them into especially composed porcelain mix the mold was eliminated from the process and a new kind of surface was created.

The Presence of Absence by Milena Kling

In observation of traces, the work “THE PRESENCE OF ABSENCE” by graduate Milena Kling emphasizes the potential of the invisible, which stimulates our imagination. The project present new haptic and visual qualities by reinterpreting common production strategies of mouth-blown glass.

Cooking Applications by Casper Tolhuisen

Today we present Collection by Casper Tolhuisen. The food project is based on the creation of a set of tools in order to imitate the mass production processes and experiment with new ways to cook food. Thus, as it can be seen, the main focuses of it are both experimentation and design process.

Ephemera III – The destruction of physical typography by Bogidar Mascareñas

Ephemera III – “What has been accumulated will be exhausted” relies on the fact that the enormous amount of elements presented which will be burned. Out of the 4 different posters which made the serie of Ephemera, this one could not be finished. For the process, the designer made a template with the sentence to be placing the 800 incense cones. The result: Police thinking the house was burning!

Ephemera II – The destruction of physical typography by Bogidar Mascareñas

“What has been gathered will be dispersed” elaborates on the fact that should be formed by a countless element, so these will scatter. Using a laser-cut template with the aim of getting a thicker message, the phrase was destroyed to get by another color pigment and using a dryer for spreading.

Ephemera I – The destruction of physical typography by Bogidar Mascareñas

“What has been built up will collapse” is the first poster of the ephemera collection. In this case the message was made out of jelly, a casting process and the experimentation of the characteristics of the material. Thus, the process starts with the creation of the molds that later on were filled with the jelly and solidified at low temperatures. Finally, the goal of the poster arrived once was exposed: Due to the temperature (20º) the material melt and the poster collapsed.

Sous les paves, la plage by Marlies van Putten

Sous les pavés, la plage is a Project where experimentation with process and material is a central theme in the work of Marlies van Putten. From Royal Art Academy in The Hague (The Netherlands) she presents her research into the production of organic forms by means of a special technique to cast aluminium.
